A Malawi Defence Force (MDF) officer died on Wednesday in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) while in line of duty.

A statement by MDF Spokesperson Francis Kakhuta Banda confirms that Warrant Officer Class One Yohane Mwalera Dick, aged 48, died while trying to recover a United Nations Military vehicle.

Malawi soldiers are part of a UN Force intervention brigade put together by SADC to deal with rebel groups that have been terrorizing civilians in DRC.

In its eulogy, the MDF has described Mwalera Dick as a courageous, hardworking and enthusiastic soldier who was always ready to take on new challenges.

A mechanic by profession, the MDF soldier died after being hit by a winch notch handle which is a metal bar, and had sustained a deep cut on the head which caused profuse bleeding and subsequent death.

Dick hails from Kalitsiro Village , Traditional Authority Njolomole in Ntcheu District. He was born on 6 November, 1966 and joined Malawi Defence Force in October, 1990. He is survived by a wife and six children..

His body is expected in the country over the weekend and burial will take place at Chilinde Cemetery in Lilongwe City.
